Acrylics that feel and look more like oils

These Tri-Art paints work and feel much like oils. I like and use these paints on many of my paintings.
I have found however that these paints will dry up in the tubes much quicker than most other brands. Other comments I have gotten about the paints is that many people don't like the rather flimsy construction of the tubes themselves. Despite these criticisms I'm still a fan of these paints.

Working from photos vs plein air painting

This short video talks about the benefits of painting on location as opposed to painting in the studio especially when it comes to working with photographs.
The plein air painting was done just a block from our studio here in St. Augustine, Florida.
